Proteinase (endopeptidase), trypsin-like and chymotrypsin-like activities were examined throughout the ontogenetic development of cultured Farfantepenaeus paulensis. Whole individuals from di€erent larval and postlarval stages, and the hepatopancreas of adults were homogenized and assayed to quantify the enzyme activities of speci®c substrates. Proteinase… CONTINUE READING
